How would you code the following? Patient presents to smooth off #9-ILF, chipped recently and originally placed 2 days earlier. Removed No decay, VOCO (prime/bond), Flowable Composite Shade: A2 finish, polish, checked occlusion.
Since this was a restorative material failure and it was composite and codes only exist for crown, inlay, onlay, and veneer the most appropriate code would be D2999 with a brief narrative to accompany the claim.
